1860 Cocaine is first isolated from the coca leaf by Albert Neiman. He receives his PhD for his efforts.

I would say first recorded as being isolated from leaf 1860.



True enough, but without any evidence of prior isolation, we have to go with the evidence at hand. And like I said earlier, he could have got whacked out of his gourd drinking coca leaf tea. Especially if he had been chewing leaves. Again, great info. You have my thanks.
